It increasingly appears that a drought is not likely in the near future. Gulf and Atlantic Ocean moisture combined with warm and unstable air will continue to produce showers and thunderstorms each day through the end of the week. By the weekend we should see a bit more sunshine with the showers becoming more widely scattered. Rainfall amounts on Wednesday were quite generous in some of the thunderstorms. The heavy rainfall was caused by slow moving storms that continued over an area for an extended period of time. Temperatures will range in the middle to upper 80s through Friday, with lower 90s possible over inland locations this weekend. A cold front should push the clouds and showers out of the area by early next week, bringing more sunshine and less humid conditions.
